Peter Doig Bio

About The Artist

Peter Doig's paintings capture moments of the everyday with a dream-like tranquility altered through the use of staining, dripping, stippling, and a vibrant range of electric, almost hallucinatory, colors. His landscapes, for which he is best known, are abstracted from a range of sources including memories and found photographs.

The artist began showing in pubs and bars in England in the early 1980s, catching the eye of mega-collector Charles Saatchi. In 1984, an exhibition of paintings held at Victoria Miro Gallery was short-listed for the prestigious Turner Prize. His first American exhibition was mounted by curator Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson in 2000 at the Berkeley Art Museum. A major retrospective of Doig's work was presented by Tate Britain in 2008.
